Xarfax the Heretic is an Inferno hero. Xarfax starts with a spell book and the spell Fireball.


In World on Fire, Xarfax appears as a possessed Knight in the process of becoming a Heretic (See Xarfax (World on Fire)). Prior to that, he served with Tavin in the Erathian Border Guards for 15 years.


  • He is unable to cast Fireball until he gains more spell points.
  • Together with Vey, Xarfax is one of the two magic class heroes that start with Leadership.


Xarfax casts Fireball with damage increased by 3% for every hero level, divided by level of targeted creature.

For Example: On Lvl10 Xarfax: Fireball will deal 30% more damage to Lvl 1 Creatures, 15% more to Lvl2, 7.5% to Lvl3 etc.
